Giving Oneself to Others

In Bangla (Bengali) we call it ada, in English ginger. It is a spicy herb extremely popular in Asian cooking. It is also used as an herbal medicine. It is rich in anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. It also helps in stomach disorders.

Although it does not look attractive, its benefits are many. The outward appearance should not mislead us.

Among the creations, mankind is an important one. Mankind, like the ginger, can be helpful and useful to all other creations. Sometimes, mankind behave completely different than intended. People destroy the Nature, pollute environment, become subversive to other human beings, and cause havoc to other creations.

If it wants to, like the ada, mankind can live in peaceful coexistence with others and benefit and enrich others for the better. Let's give it a try for the best of us and the earth and its other creations.
